i attended this show..and only this day of the festival..i had tickets for everything but something came up and had to leave after the 1st...i flew in from upstate NY met up with a high school friend who came form colorado...I was like the first person in the parking lot and didnt even have a car (my father dropped me off) and within minutes the place was every way possible...met up with my friend and had a great day. the scene was awesome..desert and the mountains...the variety of substances was excellent as well...anyways the show

the was still one of the first times i saw phil with "friends"... it was a blast. from the opening notes of playin to the final notes of the reprise..highlights for me personally were the eleven which was just phenomenal, reuben and cherise--awesome!!!, unbroken chain. and the entire second half of the set..

never did go back to vegoose because i never thought the lineup compared to this first years

Subject: This recording best quality
This is a great PAF show, not epic like the next night, but really well-played, fun setlist. I too, really like Joan Osborne singing with the guys; she brings a sultry, touch of class to Jerry's songs in particular.

This recording seems so have the best sound of the three up on Archive at this time. The other two have a brighter sound, but something is missing. This one is on the muddy side, but with a little treble boost, it sounds big and full.

One good thing about "Mr. Bolt's Review" - Safe to say he won't be at any more shows. Based on his review, if he did attend another Phil Show, he'd be more ignorant than his review paints him out to be already...
Reviewer: PHIL FACTOR - favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - November 27, 2005
Subject: Go Away!!!!
Dear Mr. Bolt,

We're all glad you got to see the Dead in their prime. We all think you are right next to God in both your coolness and musical knowledge. Now please lock yourself up w/ your bootlegs and shut your holier-than-thou blow hole. You don't think it's the same? No shit! It aint the same, but it's pretty damn good! If it wasn't for bands like Phil's and WSP, and a few others who are tapped in, we would all be screwed. You, in your supreme wisdom, want to pick on what little good music that there is simply because it doesn't match the sounds of your fading, golden-hued memories! You sir are a pathetic, bitter, old-fart. I think I speak for everyone still interested in living their life in the here and now when I say: GO AWAY!!!!

P.S. I still love Jerry as much as anyone, but it's been ten freakin' years now so, for the love of God, step forward!

Subject: Nice Show
Yes this is a good show. Very well played with good sound. This is not the Grateful Dead of '68 -'79, but it is a whole heck of a lot better than most anything else out there right now. Phil is committed to growing and changing and that is a good thing and adds new and interesting twists to his intrpretation of the muse.

Playn' folds nicely into trucking which melts wellinto the eleven very well. Reuben & Cherise is a nice choice and Unbroken Chain goes to some interesting places.

Shakedown with Warren is as always very good and Sugaree rocks. Help>Slip>Casey is fun and well played. I msut say the set list and choice of songs is much more adventurous than the Dead were in there last few years and I give Phil tons of credit for that. So, Please Phil, keep on Truckin!

Subject: Phil rises to the occasion
Phil and his ever changing band of "friends" continues to treat the fan base with steller shows. I was really excited to see Joan back in the fold at the Vegas shows, especially with the announcement of the upcoming SF year end run. I can't wait for the BG Civic gig.
This is one of the best stadium recordings I've heard. I can't believe how phat Phil comes through in the mix.
As for the playing, it's hot from start to finish. Kudos to Warren Haynes for making an appearance. Now, lets get the Bimbos and Hard Rock shows uploaded.

Subject: magnolia mountain
ryan adams should be a proud young man. not only did he decline to meet these gigs (exhaustion? illness?), the band covered magnolia mountain, one of his finer new songs. phil must really like him, as evidenced in colorado this summer. the vocals here are a little shaky because the vocals to this song are tricky. joan and rob do well, though.

all in all, a real treat to hear phil still at it 40 years later and inviting "friends" out on stage to jam. the high water mark for plq may have been 2001, but dang there aren't really any other groups out there jamming like this these days.

shakedown is excellent. that would have been something to see.

sound is ok, it's just a tad muddy for my tastes, though the audience is very quiet in this mix.

Subject: birthday weekend
glad to see this on the archive so soon. I spent my 32nd birthday weekend at this festival, and I think it's the best birthday I've ever had-including 10-26-89 in my hometown of Miami.(my first show, which I was entirely too high to appreciate at the time)
I've seen Phil and friends a bunch, but I must say that the magic was in full force for this one. It seems as though Warren has acquired a Mutron III envelope filter which is the device that produced Jerry's fat shakedown wah tone. Warren was using it gratuitously all weekend with mule. Needless to say, this is one of the best shakedowns I have ever witnessed, if not the best. If you have never heard warren and/or joan sing sugaree and joan sing ruben and cherise, then those two alone are worth this download. thanks to all the tapers, fans, and musicians for providing and preserving this music.

Subject: Joan & Warren!!!!!
Being an afternoon set, wasn't expecting much. However when Joan broke into Rueben & Cherise, chills went down my about a perfect Jerry tribute. Then Warren comes on stage, hits the wah-wah and were off and running with a KILLER Shakedown, Hide Your Love Away & Sugaree. No offense to other Phil guitarists, but if ain't Kimock give me Warren! He sings and plays his ass off.

Subject: yes!!
gotta agree - this is a very good sounding aud!! nice job by the taper and kudos for sharing (especially so soon). Joan sounds absolutely stellar with the band. 3roin hit the nail on the head - very soulful voice - flows beautifully. worth the d/l - band is "on" for this show. phenomenal interplay between Rob, Phil, and Jimmy during the jams!!!! - very very good instrument seperation on this recording.
Reviewer: 3roin stones - favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - November 3, 2005
Subject: Gotta love that Phil
This is an excellent aud. I'm sure there will be others uploaded but this sounds so good to me that it might suffice.
IMHO Joan fits PLAF's like a glove-so soulful and and unpretentious.
Greta setlist and performance.
I'm downloading now.
